    No, but that is why it is so important to have the Win98 folder from the CD permanently on your hard drive, then when it asks for the CD, you point it to the location on the HDD.
    Also, when you make a network change and other system changes, or run SFC to replace a corrupt file etc, it asks for the CD.

    You have no alternative except to procure another Win98 CD.

    Do you still do that the hard way, Terry? You can change the disk location in the Registry so it never asks; just goes strarght to the directory. Use the Search in regedit for "E:" or whatever it calls your CD drive. I think it will only occur once, but the right one has an obvious name.
